The Olympus E-30 gets a brief hands-on – existence still questioned

The digicam gurus at got their hands on an Olympus E-30 DSLR and still didn’t reveal how the $1,500 prosumer cam will stand out from the crowd. Sure, it sports a new 12.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor, a new processing engine, and some in-camera software editing functions, but are those enough to sway potential buyers away from similar priced, but far superior, Canon 50D or Nikon D90 – I don’t think so. Maybe when reviews are posted, it will review that the camera is some sort of wunderkind.
